A Howling Good Time

By Amy Greenway

 (October 29, 2013) - On Saturday, October 26, Anderson Speedway hosted the Howl-O-Ween Pet Costume Parade; a benefit for the Madison County Humane Society.

Dozens of dogs dressed in costume and fought the cold weather to walk the track in support. Susie, mom of a large mixed breed dog named, Rusty said, “We got him [Rusty] from the Humane Society nine years ago. He’s been such a great addition to our family.” Susie also mentioned she had adopted a couple of cats from the Madison County Humane Society.

Rusty, dressed in a full body skeleton costume, won a first place trophy for scariest costume. Other trophies were given to: Raylan Givens, a Goldendoodle dressed in a biker style jean vest with red bandanna, won cutest costume, Scrappy, a large mixed breed dressed as his favorite race car (#49 Front Wheel Drive Dylan Hoppes) with his owner, Amy Coryell, dressed in a race car driver’s suit and helmet, won best pet/owner duo and Maddy, a Pomchi dressed as a piece of cheese hauled in a mouse trap wagon by a mouse, Parker, and a cat, Paige, won most creative costume.

Through the walk, the Madison County Humane Society, raised a car load of supplies and a few hundred dollars.

“We were happy to be here, and hope through our efforts that Hannah gets adopted. If people could just take the time to meet her, they would find out she’s such a happy, loving girl,” said Ann Duran, a volunteer from Madison County Humane Society.
